Another ROM you say? I've tried all the Acer-based 3.1 custom ROMs and none of them seem to suit my needs. They seem to add lots more bloatware and tweaks that made my tablet quite unstable.

So I went ahead and built my own ROM which essentially is a pruned-stock standard Acer 3.1 with only the barest minimal features to maintain speed and stability of the system. I've also gone ahead and deodexed most all of the frameworks and apps so feel free to mod this rom to add custom skins and animations if you so please. I'm sharing my work in the hope that you will find it useful.

The ROM can be downloaded here - http://www.multiupload.com/9H43RO49H0

*Patch update* - I made a slight error in the update script and didn't set the right permissions for Superuser access. Apply this patch to fix it if your ROM doesn't have a working Superuser.apk - http://www.multiupload.com/RUO6SVRXEV

Thanks for this ROM. I had been deleting apps I did not want but could not get past the Vendor subdirectory. This is now my daily ROM.

I'm going to try this now, I'm unimpressed with the acer 3.1 update, lots of FC, dhcp issue on wifi, overloaded ram (seems to have worse mm than 3.0.1).

argh!

looking forward to yours!

Sorry if Superuser isn't working for you. I didn't test the update script for the patch so that might be why. I have however updated the main ROM image in Post 1 to have support for SU.

Hello folks. I am new owner of the Acer A500 and naturally, a total noob in these matters, but could the OP please post installation instructions and perhaps even a list of what has been taken out from the stock Acer firmware??


Hope I am not asking for too much here. :)

This is weird, I was using p2-2 rom and had it oc'ed at 1540. I have been switching back and fourth between roms to see which is more smooth and stable, Mininmalist 3.1 was the last I tried that I am on now, And this rom is running fast and very stable, I think I'll stay with minimalist.

    Is there anyway to pre-build root access and USB 3G support in your ROM?

    Yes, I can make a patch that you can apply to your stock ROM to get USB 3G support.

    ETA ~ 4-5 hours.

    is it safe to assume that this has full mouse and keyboard support?

    Yes it does, confirmed. Works great.
